The biggest hurdle to overcome with the metal clay is the initial expenses of investing in the right firing equipment and tools along with the clay as it's pricey.  Once you're over that hurdle it's simply a matter of replenishing your metal clay as you use it up.

There are several questions I have concerning firing the metal clay (methods, etc...) and wondered where to ask on the forum?

Beads - well they are an addiction, but in the grand scheme of things, if I have to be addicted to something, let's make it beads.  Beads don't cause altered states of consciousness or make you crazy or even send you to the hospital.  Beads are a hell of a lot cheaper than regular mental therapy.


Thank you for sharing with us your beading technique!  I think it is beautiful and I hope to learn how to bead.

Right now I'm teaching Gina how to do beadwork.  She could probably tell you that it really isn't as hard as it looks.  I think her biggest frustration is the thread wanting to knot up!  We wax the thread too and now and then we still get knots.  Knots and beadwork go hand in hand like aphids on roses.

I hope to see some of Gina's creations.  It is awesome that you are teaching her how to do beadwork.

Thank you, Amanda!  ura
